The Live at Home scheme is a national organisation which is organised by the Methodist Church but is open to everybody. Members are not required to be Christian or indeed have any faith. The scheme is aimed mainly at those who are lonely, elderly or are unable to get out on their own.

Live At Home
The Middlesbrough branch started early in 2002 and is based at Marton Methodist Church. Activities include:

  • A fortnightly meeting called Good Companions which is open to all and includes games afternoons, outings and a speaker programme.
  • On alternative weeks we also run a Lunch Club (Booking necessary)
  • Transport is available for both the Good Companions and the Lunch Club.

Activities outside Marton Methodist church include:

  • One to one visiting is also available to those who are unable to come to the church building, in addition help can be offered with the weekly shopping.
  • A “Drop in” also takes place at the church in Normanby on Monday afternoons.
  • Bingo club at Trinity on Fridays.
